Bye Bye Bead Tree.

My friend is closing the doors of her lovely bead shop at Semaphore. I love a good stroll along Semaphores' main street - fun shops , quirky cafes and grand old pubs. There is even a lovely old independent movie theatre called the Odeon.  My daughters love the atmosphere and the fact that all tickets are eight bucks - all the time!

There are several great op-shops and a great beach and jetty waiting at the end of the street as a reward for the exercise - comes complete with fairground in the Summer!

This is a lovely beachside suburb that has so far withstood the invasion of the dreaded McMansions that seem to be gobbling up the rest of the coastline. Still, it is time for Jackies shop, The Bead Tree to close its doors. The good news for Adelaide peeps of the beady kind is that there is gonna be a BIG sale this week-end - June 10, 11 and 12 - with 50% off store wide. woo hoo - that doesn't include the handmade jewellery there 'cos that is consignment work but all the beadies and findings from Swarovskis to Czech glass will be on sale. So you can knock yourself out bargain hunting!

 It won't be quite the same without the Bead Tree crew but I guess I will still manage to find a reason (or 20) to hit Semaphore Road!
Farewell Bead Tree!

I don't know that shop but it's always sad when one closes, unless the owner is moving onto something better.
